I'm almost done with my Booker DeWitt costume for DragonCon - only thing left to do now is to finish the shirt. But seriously, what is up with this shirt? Can someone, accomplished costume-maker or otherwise, make sense of my reference image?

Here is the main reference picture I'm going on: http://pxlbyte.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/booker-dewitt.png
I've got everything set and it looks pretty good - now I just need to finish the shirt. Do I need to basically attach a white tuxedo shirt collar and cuffs to a regular black shirt? The only reason I'm thinking maybe not is that the white is visible despite the sleeves being rolled up. Is he wearing two layers of shirts? If so, where's the black shirt's collar?
Any help identifying what to do with this last aspect of the costume is appreciated. Right now I'm thinking of just cutting the black shirt I have off around the elbows, sewing a white shirt's collar to it, and just keeping them rolled up all the time at the con - but that doesn't seem right to me. Maybe I need to roll up the cuffs a specific way? I don't even.
